It’s sure to be another number one hit for the FGL boys! They released their new single “Dirt” today along with the music video for the new tune. What’s really nice to see is Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard exchanging verses as most Florida Georgia Line songs are heavily Tyler sided when it comes to the singing.
What excites me most about this song is that it showcases the duo more than just the party-frat-boy type that a lot of other country music blogs depict FGL as. The song tells a subtle story. Something that a lot of critics say country music, as of late, has gotten away from. The lyrics tell the story of where we come from. The song takes you through experiences you may have on “dirt” in your younger years with friends, family, significant other, etc. all the way through your adult experiences you may have on “dirt” like buying a house and ultimately returning to the ground one day.
FGL undoubtedly leads the pack when it comes to the “bro-country” genre (for goodness sakes, can we rid of this term already please?!), but they are also the ones that can quickly turn country music (or “bro-country”) back around. And I think they are making it happen with “Dirt”. What do you think?
Tell me what you think of the new Florida Georgia Line song and music video over on Twitter at @tylerwinters_.
